On the Use of Improved Imaging Techniques for the Development of a Multistatic Three-Dimensional Millimeter-Wave Portal for Personnel Screening
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 138, 83-98, 2013
Abstract
The design and evaluation of an active three dimensional (3D) millimeter wave imaging system for personnel security screening is presented in this work. The system is able to produce a highresolution 3D reconstruction of the whole human body surface and reveal concealed objects under clothing. Innovative multistatic millimeter wave radar designs and algorithms, which have been previously validated, are combined to significantly improve the previous reconstruction results. In addition, the system makes use of a reduced amount of information, thus simplifying portal design. Representative simulation results showing good performance of the proposed system are provided and supported by sample measurements.
